Indemnification for rabies
Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 6-A
§ 105-d. Indemnification for rabies. Each county shall be liable for
damages resulting within the county to domestic animals from the disease
known as rabies and indemnification therefor shall be made in the manner
provided by this article. The term "domestic animals" as used in this
article shall mean domesticated sheep, horses, cattle, swine and goats.
Such indemnification shall not exceed the actual damage and shall in no
event exceed the sum of five hundred dollars for each animal in the case
of damage to horses or cattle, or one hundred fifty dollars for each
animal in the case of damage to swine, goats or sheep, provided,
however, that in the case of registered purebred bovine animals
indemnification may be made in an amount not to exceed seven hundred
dollars for each animal.

The board of supervisors of each county shall have power to cause to
be assessed, levied and collected in the same manner as other charges
against the county, such sums of money as shall be necessary to pay
indemnification on account of damages resulting from rabies as provided
in this article.
